The first gift of the New Year to each of us is the opportunity to bring forward the previous 21 day Winter Ceremonies and prepare to step out with them toward building personal ceremony based on personal and collective observation and experience. At this point it may not even be entirely clear what this consists of..but, trust, that the wisdom and knowledge that has been built and accrued in recent months will coalesce and reveal itself in gentle increments as we seek to remember and ‘remember to remember’.
